United Way Kicks Off Annual Community Campaign on September 1, 2021

On Wednesday, September 1, 2021, United Way of Southwest Alabama (UWSWA) will feature its partner agencies, internal programs, award winners, sponsors, and pacesetters. During all of the FOX 10 newscasts, including Studio 10, there will be guests appearing to talk about all things UWSWA. In addition to the television broadcast, Fox 10 and UWSWA will each host live streamed segments on Facebook.

This year, iHeart Radio local stations will feature UWSWA on its 5 local radio stations and digital platforms.

The daylong, multi-platform event provides UWSWA an opportunity share the work of its 46 partner agencies and our 11 internal programs, which make up the Community Safety Net, with Fox 10 viewers and iHeart listeners. Also, it serves as an opportunity to share how people can find health and human services.
